    So I, unfortunately, have some bad news. My Tornado F5 has croaked. I was gaming on it playing Wildlands and it powered off completely with no reboot. So I went to turn it back on and nothing happened. I panicked. Disconnected everything, disconnected the battery and did a power drain, let it sit overnight. Reassembled and well, the same issue was happening.

    I am not sure what caused this, one of the IC's near the SATA port for the 2.5-inch bay gets burning hot when plugged in. Nothing else happens on the unit though. I think the motherboard has failed.

    At this point, I might as well scrap it and sell it for what parts I can as I have no use for any of it.
